24 Nov Geometric House Blends Into The Rocky Mountain Hillside
With the Holiday Season here, many of us have plans beyond just a lovely feast, shopping, and spending time at home with our loved ones. This is the time when holidaying in the mountains is truly magical! Snow-covered peaks, hot chocolate (or a drink of your choice) in hand, and the roaring fireplace next to you make for a setting that provides one with memories of a lifetime. Despite its unmistakable contemporary exterior and geometric façade, the Owl Creek Residence is at its heart a home in the mountains that combines comfort, mesmerizing views, and a vantage point unlike any other!
Designed by Skylab, this gorgeous modern house was designed for two families and with ample space in the common areas; a holiday here is something you will be hard-pressed to forget. The home offers a spectacular view of Snowmass Mountain and the Rocky Mountains landscape even as changing seasons bring different colors, sights, and sounds. It is nature that takes center-stage here with the outdoors being brought inside with extensive use of glass. This also ushers in ample natural light; something that the owners were pretty keen on.

We love how this residence moves away from the stereotypical idea of a house in the hills and yet it is still draped on the inside with plenty of wood. Double-height living areas connected with the deck outside, a triangular pool, steel and glass framework inside the house and multiple levels that create numerous social zones make this mountain residence one of a kind indeed.
